I think this happens because DOSBOX changes the title of its browser window. For example, initially it's "Stunt Driver : Sphere, Inc. : Free Borrow & Streaming : Internet Archive". Then when you start the game, it briefly changes the window title to "DOSBox," then it changes the window title to "DOSBox SVN, CPU speed: 3000 cycles, Frameskip 0, Program: STUNT". Then if you quit the game it changes to "DOSBox SVN, CPU speed: 3000 cycles, Frameskip 0, Program: DOSBOX."
I think it's good that the code to run DOSBox in a browser provides these details, but it would be better if it could append this information to the existing window title, or reorganize the title so the most important information is at the start, e.g.: "Program STUNT running in DOSBox (v. SVN, CPU speed: 3000 cycles, Frameskip 0)"

"DOSBox %s, CPU speed: %8d cycles, Frameskip %2d, Program: %8s"
I filed issue #61 against EM-DOSBox for "friendlier window title."
